Temblor


PROJECT AND REFERENCES

In 2010 there was a huge earthquake in Chile (8.8). In some random news, I read that the earthquake had changed the mass of the Earth, therefore, time was also modified in a fragment of a second. The physical phenomenon changed time. I was impressed. Times usually feels as something immaterial that happens to us, that is kind of somthing floating in the air, surrounding us, making us old without notice. But now it was so physical. Due to Einstein's Relativity Theory, we know that time is in relation to space, but this relation is not that obvious to our human senses, at least at our human scale. But, under my perspective, the earthquake phenomenon made time something physical as touching the soil under our feet. Well, we have always related time with the movement of the earth, but I never thought something as an earthquake could change it. Actually, to be honest, time didn't change, what changed was our human measurement of time in relation to the movement of the Earth.


Well, I was thinking this aspect could be interesting to explore. My clocks in relation to earthquakes and temblors.
